Master Your Movement With Proprioception Training
Written by John Walker
Proprioception is the process by which the body can vary muscle contraction in immediate response to incoming information regarding external forces, by utilizing stretch receptors in the muscles to keep track of the joint position in the body. 🏃💨
Proprioception means "sense of self". In the limbs, the proprioceptors are sensors that provide information about joint angle, muscle length, and muscle tension, which is integrated to give information about the position of the limb in space.
Proprioceptors are sensory receptors located in the inner ear, muscles, tendons, and joints that use internal stimuli to detect changes in position or movement of the body or its limbs are called proprioceptors.
My entire curriculum is structured around the development and proper utilization of proprioceptors!
Proprioception refers to the body's ability to sense movement within joints and joint position. This ability enables us to know where our limbs are in space without having to look. It is important in all everyday movements but especially so in complicated sporting movements, where precise coordination is essential. It is hard to develop Fast Twitch Fibers without proper Proprioception & muscle engagement!
